Benrik’s ‘change your life’ diary

This year we will be mostly following Benrik’s ‘change your life’ diary (£12.99, Penguin Viking) to the letter. ‘Its dictates may seem arbitrary, but only thus can we counter the arbitrariness of fate,’ write co-authors Ben Carey and Henrik Delehag. Sounds good enough. On Tuesday, we sent a letter to a mass murderer. Yesterday, we flattered someone to see if it got us anywhere (result still pending).
